Marijke van Warmerdam
Marijke van Warmerdam lives and works in Amsterdam and Karlsruhe. She is internationally renowned for her short loop films, photographs and sculpture. With a typically light touch, the work combines a deceptively naive approach to the act of seeing with straightforward strategies, such as dramatic shifts of scale, reflection, rhythmic repetition or surprising juxtapositions which urge us to look with our eyes wide open and think twice about our surroundings.
Van Warmerdam first gained global acclaim for her contribution to the 1995 Venice Biennale with her looped films. Van Warmerdam’s work has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions including: Sound Corner at Auditorium Parco Della Musica, Rome, Italy (2018); Ryan Lee Gallery, NY, U.S (2017); The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2014); Museu de Serralves, Porto, Portugal (2012); Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Netherlands and Magasin III Museum for contemporary Art, Stockholm, Sweden (2011).
